What is Deodeok efficacy?


Korea is a country with four distinct seasons. Therefore, in winter, the cold weather lasts so that there is no green grass left. It is said that ancient ancestors stored grain for winter and used root vegetables as alternative food. Among the root vegetables eaten a lot by old Koreans, Deodeok has a unique scent and bitter taste. Today, I will introduce Deodeok.

What is Deodeok?

Deodeok is a plant that mainly grows in the mountains. The root shape is similar to ginseng or bellflower. Koreans think that Deodeok is good for the body, and it is actually said to have a lot of saponin, so its efficacy is similar to that of ginseng. Deodeok has 4 leaves, and it is common to dig down the roots that are 20 cm from the ground.


The saponin contained in Deodeok is said to be an ingredient that helps absorb and excrete bad cholesterol and fat. It also strengthens lung function and is said to be effective against colds.
